There's been some changes in themanagement. , who has been doing a great job as manager for nearly 5 years, is stepping down to focus on his new role as Railo community manager for the -Pacific region. 

Brad Fleming, a relatively new face around Perth, will be gradually taking over more of the manager's role in the coming months, as he learns all the processes. Existing co-manager will be helping to run the group in the meantime.

's enthusiasm and great ideas have kept the group alive and we all owe him a big debt of gratitude - but we can still expect to see him at meetings, especially as they're often held in his office! has already shown a lot of commitment to the group - driving up from his home in Australind each month to attend meetings - so we can look forward to his fresh perspective on running a user group.
